A fantastic place to stay, excellent food and top quality accommodation. Leon, as the front man could not be more accommodating or helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone doing the C2C, as the secure bike area was a much appreciated benefit. Brooklands has to be the best in Cumbria!

We stayed for a couple of nights on our way to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games (spectators not athletes!) In Scotland we stayed in a hotel for 8 nights on a B & B basis paying far more per night than at Brooklands. If only the hotel breakfast and accommodation had been half as good as Brooklands.........! Leon and Debbie... More

Stayed on a Saturday evening, arriving slightly earlier than we had said but it didn't matter as Leon was waiting with a warm welcome. We were given tea and chocolate cake after placing our bag in our room, number 5. It was at the top of the house and the decor was elegant but in keeping with the style of... More

I stayed here on a 5 week course and found it superb. Beautiful rooms, breakfast and excellent service made the stay worthwhile and comfortable. Free Wi fi and owners were approachable and helpful with any needs and requests.

I stayed at brooklands for 5 weeks whilst on a training course (Monday to friday). From first arriving I was greeted at the door and made to feel welcome. My suitcase was carried upstairs for me and I was made to feel like royalty. From the outside the brooklands is very appealing with lovely flowers around the windows and in... More

Everything you could possibly need for a stay was available, nice wee biscuits & chocolate?? the little extras included in bathroom were... More

If you want to stay in a spotless B & B with every luxury you could need in a room with a comfy bed and the best breakfast ever, stay here. Just back from a weekend break and could not recommend it highly enough. The proprietors are lovely people whose aim is to give you a perfect stay in their... More

On arrival we were greeted with tea and delicious carrot cake which was most welcome after our long journey. Our room was just as we expected with all those little extras mentioned by other reviewers, including a small fridge. The B and B was in easy walking distance of central Penrith which meant we were able to eat out without... More

It is pointless me going into detail about Brooklands, it has all been said by other reviewers. I have stayed there on 3 occasions before and my only disappointment with this guest house is that it's popularity has meant a room is not always available and I have to stay elsewhere. Everything about it is a pleasure. I noted another... More
